Gil, your title is priceless. Very Happy

What, not a fan of the e92 Matty "Sistine ceiling" pose? I thought we could use a little vintage card content in the header image.

We can do the one you posted next though. I've got some great looking images waiting in line too - taken from obaks, kalamazoo bats team cards, and other fine sets.

It was a featured piece in REA's auction last year. f I had deep pockets, I'd have gone for it.

Here are some of the potential header images I've been playing with (including those suggested).

I like the one of Jay and Lee in the bottom right corner. Looks like they are having a couple brews after Lee's 300 game! I figured they would have MN shirts on instead of New York and Chicago however. scratch

I think I understood that Wink

It's from the July/August '98 issue of VCBC. Not sure where the image originated from though - likely an ad piece for E & J Burke (the name pictured on the barrels). I've always thought it was Anson and Ewing pictured enjoying their drinks.

Quan, that's my new favorite back - I have to get some business cards made up with that on the back!

Not a very tidy bunch after a few beers, just throw your bottle on the ground. Great images. Jay and I couldn't be outside having a brew we would have beersicles in no time we have been freezing our ass off lately.

Ben I think the wonka Full count back Should replace the title header.

That would be cool too, only thing is the image it too long top to bottom. I would have to shrink it way down or cut off the bottom half for it to look right. Horizontal card poses, team photos, baseball action shots, anything that has greater width than length, works really well.

Would love to use a "wonkashop" creation as the header though. Cool

I found a good spot for the Wonka Full Count back, in the "who is online" section. Wouldn't mind keeping it there as long as John is ok with it.

BTW was the "Fourm" typo intentional? Error back? Laughing

No problems here Ben...let me know if you want me to start making; say some weekly images. Just let me know what sizes etc.

Glad to do it...heck we can even have a weekly funny pic of our guy Jay...we can call it the Dunderhead Times or something....LOL Very Happy

Ben, I'm so proud of you I was wondering when someone was going to catch that, but the day I posted nobody said anything so I let it ride...LOL Smile


Just for you..Ben!
Yes the typo was correct sort of a joke/mistake etc. Use which ever one you need....here's the correct one color set for you without the aging....or is it the rare one?? question

Here you go guys, Ben I can re-size any of these to fit your banner above or below, thought I'd keep them bigger for your review...

Let me know which ones you need me to send you, that is if you guys want to use any of these??

John - those are all spectacular! Though, you should have changed the Ewing and Mascot to Lee and Jay (Jay being the Mascot of course). Razz

I believe my favorite out of all these masterpieces is either the woman holding the fan or the Mickey Cochrane catching?????

Great stuff John. Your photoshop skills are an asset to the forum. All of these are really well done and they'll all be used on here at some point. That Cochrane die cut is impressive! I'll PM you about sizing issues on a few of them, but for now the Baker image is perfect!
